Where the Path Breaks


Published November 26, 2010


LibriVox recording of Where the Path Breaks, by Captain Charles de Créspigny. Read by Roger Melin.

The soldier awakened from the brink of death eight months after his injury on the battlefield. As he slowly regained his senses and his memory, the face of a girl creeps into his mind, and he soon recalls that this girl had married him out of pity on the day he went into battle. The wedding had been a true "war wedding".".
Inspired by the face and the vague recollections which were taking shape, and after learning that his day-bride had since remarried (believing her day-husband killed in action), the battle-scarred soldier decides to re-invent himself, take on a new name, and seek a new life. To what extent his former life would have upon his adopted life unfolds in unforgettable detail with each chapter of Where the Path Breaks.
Captain Charles de Créspigny was a pseudonym used by Charles Norris (C.N.) Williamson. (Introduction by Roger Melin)

Roger gives us another of his excellent readings! He is very sensitive to the characters and context, and he brings the text to life. It's an A+ performance.

The book itself was a C at best. Lot of time wandering around in the soldier's thoughts. That got old - as did the mysticism which undergirds the premise of the story. I just didn't find a lot to hold the story together, or to make me care what this guy thought.

A beautiful story of a man rebuilding his life after tragic circumstances and the sacrifices he makes for the woman who had been his wife for a day. The narration, as always by Roger Melin, is excellent.
